Hey, guess what: I have now have another thing to add to my list of
Top Favourite Physical Sensations.
It'll go there on the shelf with
drying my face with a towel after a shower. (Bliss)
taking off my socks in bed when my feet have finally warmed up (Yay)
getting into bed when the sheets have just been changed. (Utterly Delectable)
wrapping my fingers around a cup of tea. (Mmm)
the moment of sitting down on the couch, with that same cup of tea, just after the kids have snuggled up to sleep. (Tranquility)
taking off my shoes and socks at the beach, and scrunching my toes in the sand
(especially when it's Spring and you've been in socks and shoes on the beach all winter, and finally, finally, it's warm enough to take them off!) (Yum)
the shiver of cold on my toes when I walk into a wave. (Ah. Like the tingle I get when I taste a rare fizzy soft drink and my brain goes Weeeee. Oh, that should be on the list too. There you go, fine moment, get settled in.)
Ah. It's a great list, isn't it?
So what could possibly be fine enough to add to a list as scrumptious as this?
Well, it's this:
putting on your jammies and slippers after a full day of adventure with your family, when your body is tired but so happy, when you're brim-ful of Best Day Ever-itis.
Oh, the feeling of soft fabric, the warmth of your slippers and socks, the sigh as your body settles in. (SO! SNUGGLY!)
I will write about the day we had very soon. It was truly a wonderful day (in fact it was a whole weekend of lovely) but for now, I'll let the list be.
So it can look at itself and feel kind of pleased, kind of proud, kind of special
for being the
Only Thing That Helena Writes About, For Once! (Because You Know How She Can Go On)
I hope you are all having a beautiful day! We sure are.
(How could we not? A whole day at home. Practice, Maths, new islands on Poptropica. Going on a mission to find vegan cheese! Cancelling band to read library books on the couch. Peace. Space. Beauty.)
